RIP TBNY

What was Team Bernie NY?

Team Bernie NY was a coalition of grassroots groups and individual organizers, all working to elect Bernie Sanders in New York.

The group was not affiliated with the official campaign, did not fundraise and was run purely by volunteers. Our focus was fieldwork and voter contact through canvassing, voter registration and flyering. We went out rain or shine to talk to voters, gather data and spread the word. When it came time to gather signatures to put Bernie on the ballot, we mobilized and got it done!

The admin team supported the fieldwork with this website, a weekly newsletter and bi-weekly general meetings. We also managed the data entry for tens of thousands of data points and matching of these entries to official NY voter records.

Purely through voter contact and fieldwork, and without money or material support, we identified more than 35,000 registered pro-Bernie voters and registered over 6000 new voters. This information was then turned over to the official campaign for Get Out The Vote.

The data we collected illustrates the work done by many dedicated grassroots volunteers yet still represents only a fraction of the work done by volunteers in New York.

What are we doing now?

After the election, TBNY worked on various electoral projects and issue-based campaigns. However, after much deliberation we decided to dismantle the TBNY support structure that had served us during the Bernie campaign.

Many TBNYers are active in other progressive groups and some are even running for office!

    Esta nota es dirigida a todos los políticos de Rockland county y al partido demócrata, Como una contribuyente de impuestos y preocupada por los políticos que nos representan o nos han representado atravesar de los últimos años, especialmente en casos de abuso policial de parte de clarkstown police department, me preocupa el hecho que Sullivan va corriendo para un puesto político y que algunos políticos lo apoyen sabiendo o están enterados de la clase de mugre que es, porque no es secreto que Sullivan mintió en corte, firmó un affideivits para salvar a los policías implicados en el caso de mi hijo R, Canjura cuando casi pierde la vida en las manos inescrupulosas de los policías de CLARKSTOWN que lo atacaron por la espalda, los policías implicados fueron Raymond Laschet, Lee Davis, Orlando Cruz, John Hanchar y Dan Woolley. Hagan consciencia antes de proponer o sentar a alguien en un puesto político, ya que el sin el menor remordimiento mintió ante la corte, mentiras comprobadas, afirmó haber estado en el lugar del incidente para justificar a los policías criminales cuando el no presenció nada, pidan revisión del caso, el no es confiable y como una lacra que es llegara a ser parte de la destrucción de la moralidad de los ciudadanos de nuestro condado!
